      S.n.[|Cazin], 1788. - S.n.[ Cazin], Londres 1788, In-18 (8,5x13,5cm), 234pp. et 231pp. et 218pp. et 282pp. et XI, 192pp. et 233pp. et 232pp. (2), 7 volumes reliés. - nuova edizione - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition et première chez Cazin. La première édition collective paraîtra en 2 volumes in-8 en 1776, puis un troisième volume viendra s'adjoindre aux deux premiers en 1788. 7 frontispices par Dunker. Reliures de l'éditeur en plein veau blond glacé d'époque. Dos lisse ornés de 4 petits fers et de roulettes. Pièces de titre et de tomaison en maroquin brun. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches dorées. Manque au mors inférieur en tête des tomes 3, 5, et 7., idem mors supérieur en queue du tome 1. Coins frottés et frottements divers. Rousseurs éparses sur un papier jauni uniformément. Très jolie série. Tomes 1 et 2 : Ollivier. Tome 3 : Le lord impromptu. Tome 4 : Le diable amoureux. Tome 5 : Fables. Tome 6 : Fables et contes. Tomes 7. Contes. Bien qu'on retienne aujoud'hui Cazotte exclusivement pour Le diable amoureux, les épisodes magiques sont assez nombreux dans son oeuvre, notamment dans ses contes orientaux, ou de fées, qui s'apparentent à ceux d'Hamilton, mais aussi dans le poème Ollivier. Il est cependant vrai que Le diable amoureux est d'une tout autre facture, ce n'est plus seulement une oeuvre charmante, mais troublante, et beaucoup y on vu et y voient encore la preuve de l'illuminisme chez l'auteur, système qui sera entièrement dévoilé par Swedenborg et d'autres. Cazotte demeure par dessus tout, un des pionniers de la littérature fantastique française avec Potocki et Le manuscrit trouvé à Saragosse, autre diablerie, mais qui restera inconnu jusqu'en 1960.

        Voyages de M. le Marquis de Chastellux dans l'Amérique septentrionale, dans les années 1780, 1781 & 1782

      - Chez Prault, A Paris 1788 - 1791, In-8 (13x20cm), 408pp. et (4) 351pp., 2 volumes reliés. - seconda edizione rilegature di pelle di pecora pianura periodo radicati. indietro liscio decorato. parti del titolo in marocchino rosso, e il numero del volume in pelle nera. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Mention de seconde édition, en réalité quatrième édition, mais seconde parisienne chez Prault. La première, selon La biographie universelle de Michaud, n'aurait été tirée qu'à 24 exemplaire à Newport et destinée aux amis de l'auteur, et la seconde serait tout aussi rare, publiée à Cassel en 1785 ; cependant cette dernière serait fautive et pirate, éditée sans le consentement de l'auteur et incomplète (seulement un volume in-12). La publication du second volume de cette édition en 1791 tend à penser qu'elle est la plus complète. 2 cartes et 3 planches dépliantes in fine. Reliures en pleine basane racinée d'époque. Dos lisses ornés. Pièces de titre en maroquin rouge, et de tomaison en maroquin noir. Un manque en tête du tome 2. Mors supérieur du tome I très étroitement fendu en tête et queue. Frottements. 4 coins émoussés. Feuillet manuscrit sur Chastellux contrecollé sur le premier feuillet de garde du premier volume. Bon exemplaire. L'ouvrage constitue un récit de la guerre d'indépendance américaine et un récit de voyage à Philadelphie, en Albany et sur la côte est des Etats-Unis, avec la description de nombreuses villes : Salem, Portsmouth... On considère que c'est le premier récit d'importance sur la vie aux Etats-Unis. Major général dans le corps expéditionnaire commandé par Rochambeau, il assura la liaison, en tant que Maréchal de camp, entre l'état major français et Washington. L'auteur raconte dans son journal ses entrevues et ses amitiés avec La Fayette, Washington, Jefferson... Oeuvre remarquable et d'importance, non seulement parce qu'elle fournit une relation de la guerre d'indépendance contre les anglais, mais également pour ses nombreux récits sur la vie au sein de la jeune Amérique, et sur les relations précieuses que Chastellux entretint avec les grands hommes fondateurs des Etats-Unis. En annexe Lettre à M. Madisson sur le progrès que les arts et les sciences doivent faire en Amérique. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

        The History of the Rise, Progress, and Establishment, of the Independence of the United States of America: including an Account of the Late War; and of the Thirteen Colonies, from their origin to that period

      London: Printed for the Author, 1788. 4 volumes, 8vo. (8 x 4 7/8 inches). 9 engraved folding maps and plates. (Minor foxing to the plates). Contemporary tree calf, expertly rebacked to style retaining the original morocco lettering pieces A lovely set of the first edition of the "first full-scale history of this war by an American; to its preparation Jefferson contributed some aid" (Howes). Gordon was a dissenting minister in England, who like many of his class sympathized with the contention of the Thirteen Colonies. Going to America during the disturbances, and becoming pastor of the church at Jamaica Plain, now a district of Boston, he was throughout the Revolution a spectator close at hand of many important events, and the associate of many of the chief patriots. "Gordon is deservedly reckoned as the most impartial and reliable of the numerous historians of the American Revolution" (Sabin). The work is noted for its folding maps, engraved by T. Conder, which include a general map of the United States, as well as maps of New England, New Jersey, Virginia, the Carolinas, maps of the areas surrounding Boston and New York City, plus battle plans of Fort Moultrie and Yorktown.

        Generalkarte von Nordamerica samt den Westindischen Inseln Verfasst von Herrn Pownall, neu herausgegeben von Herrn F.A. Schraembl. MDCCLXXXVIII.]

      Gestochen von J. Stenger, Vienna 1788 - One sheet (of 4), approx. 23" x 26½", lightly hand-colored in outline; fine.

This is a German-language edition of the 4-sheet map of North America first brought out by Emmanuel Bowen and John Gibson in London about 1775; the engraver Franz Anton Schraembl has apparently based it on one of the states of 1777 or later. The four sheets are numbered 20-23, and this particular sheet is no. 21 showing the Mississippi Basin as far south as Natchez, the Great Lakes (except Ontario), and west to California.

        1788 Isaiah Thomas Hieroglyphic Bible - 1st Edition - Massachusetts

      A curious hieroglyphic Bible, or, Select passages in the Old and New Testaments, represented with emblematical figures, for the amusement of youth: designed chiefly to familiarize tender age, in a pleasing and diverted manner, with early ideas of the Holy Scriptures: to which are subjoined, a short account of the lives of the Evangelists, and other pieces: illustrated with nearly five hundred cuts. Worcester, Massachusetts: Isaiah Thomas, 1788. Isaiah Thomas's hieroglyphic Bible of 1788 is both a landmark piece of American children's literature and a newly ambitious use of woodcut illustration in an American printed book. The idea of a hieroglyphic Bible, in which select scriptural passages were presented in a combination of words and images, was consistent with Thomas's interest in works for children that simultaneously instructed and amused. He based his book on an English edition first published in 1783. In his preface - dedicated to the "parent, guardians, and governesses of the (newly constituted) United States of America" - Thomas notes the "considerable expense" involved in commissioning the hundreds of woodcuts that fill the book. Some of these, to the modern eye at least, seem a bit opaque; fortunately, Thomas printed the full text of each passage at the foot of the page.Isaiah Thomas (January 30, 1749-April 4, 1831) was an American newspaper publisher, Bible Printer, and author. He performed the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence in Worcester, Massachusetts, and reported the first account of the Battles of Lexington and Concord. He was the founder of the American Antiquarian SocietyPage 127 and 129 someone cut out one of the small woodcuts (see pics)

        Lettre à la chambre du commerce de Normandie; Sur le Mémoire qu'elle a publié relativement au Traité de Commerce avec l'Angleterre.

      Rouen and Paris: Chez Moutard, 1788 - Octavo (196 x 120 mm). Late 19th or early 20th century half calf and marbled boards by George J. Swayne of Brooklyn, spine decorated gilt in compartments, morocco labels, marbled edges and endpapers. Very occasional light spotting; an excellent copy. Engraved armorial bookplate of Alexis and Elizabeth du Pont of Rencourt to front pastedown. First and only edition of Dupont's defense of the free-trade treaty concluded between France and England in 1786. Du Pont had played an important role in its formation and passage. "Dupont's Lettre constitutes one of the best justifications of the Treaty of 1786 ever published. While admitting that certain interests have been temporarily damaged, it insists upon the ultimate benefits which will be certain after necessary changes have been carried out in France. Had these measures been effected, as the King and the Ministry desired according to the author, there would have been no ill results." (Saricks, Pierre Samuel Dupont de Nemours, p. 97).

        Réflexions sur la formation et la distribution des richesses....

      [Paris?]: [publisher unknown], 1788. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (220 x 133 mm). [5] 6-136 pp. Uncut in contemporary paper wrappers. Leaves carefully cleaned, some minor remaining spotting and marginal finger soiling, a few leaves with paper repairs of tears to blank fore-margin, pp. 39/40 with repaired tear to upper corner just touching page numbers. Still a very good, unmarked and untrimmed copy. ----Einaudi 5772; En francais dans le texte 165 (citing the work's publication in the Ephemerides); Goldsmiths' 13536; Kress B.1506. RARE FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM. Turgot's principal work, first published in 1769-70 in the Ephemerides du citoyen, was addressed to two young Chinamen who, "having been brought to France and educated by the Jesuits, were then sent back to Canton with a royal annuity and the task of maintaining a correspondence on the state of literature and science in China." (Palgrave III, 592). The work is divided into a hundred sections tracing the existence of commmerce to the unequal distribution of land, the diversity of the soil in fitness for production, the multiplicity of human needs, and the advantages of the division of labour. It was read by and had considerable influence upon Adam Smith, and was one of the most important economic texts to be published before Wealth of Nations. Première édition séparée mis à part le très petit nombre d'exemplaires réservés à l'auteur, extrait des Éphémérides du citoyen (1770). Écrit en nov. 1766, il fut d'abord publié en 1769 dans les tomes XI et XII de ce périodique. Édition définitive. Turgot l'a débarrassée des quelques ajouts par trop physiocratiques du trop bien intentionné Dupont de Nemours, qui figuraient dans les Éphémérides du citoyen. Principal ouvrage de Turgot qualifié ''l'un des plus grands économistes scientifiques de tous les temps'' (Schumpeter). Il aborde en cent chapitres diverses questions relatives à la culture, la production, les capitaux, le commerce, la spéculation, les intérêts, etc. Les Réflexions, d'inspiration apparemment physiocratique, n'en sont pas moins profondément originales. Plus développées, elles eussent constitué, a-t-on dit, le ''grand traité d'économie politique de leur temps.'' On n'est pas loin aujourd'hui de les considérer comme telles, et Schumpeter n'hésite pas à les égaler à la Richesse des Nations d'Adam Smith qu'elles surpassent même à ses yeux quant à la structure théorique. (Jean Viardot, En Français dans le texte). Very Good....

From all accounts very rare to find a complete first edition. ** Referenced by: ESTC N42049. ***An excellent paper published by the State Library, Victoria: La Trobe Journal (No. 8 October 1971) identifies this edition as a true first edition. The 'New & Accurate Chart of the Western or Atlantic Ocean' is signed 'Thos. Bowen 1788'. There is, the inclusion of the abstract of Keate's Pelew Islands in the Supplement [in later editions it is included in 'New Discoveries']. Bankes concludes the Supplement with some paragraphs, the details of which indicate that they were written about August 1788. Also; Cut. No. 90, the last listed in the Directions to the Binder, bears the legend 'Published as the Act directs by C. Cooke No. 17 Paternoster Row, Oct. 31. 1788'. From this, then, it would seem that this edition was published in sections in the period between early 1787 and October 1788, with the plates being the last section issued; and the wording of the Directions to the Binder and of the note at the conclusion of the List of Subscribers supports this view. Collation is as follows: Frontispiece (Neptune raising Captn. Cook up to Immortality); Titlepage; Verso (blank); (1)-(2) His Majesty's Royal Licence and Authority (for publication); (3)-(4) Preface; (5)-106 Book I, New Discoveries; (107)-314 Book II, Asia; (315)-460 Book III, Africa; (461)-576 Book ;IV, America; (577)-944 Book V, Europe; 944-947 Supplement; 947-948 Origin and Progress of the Art of Navigation; (949)-953 A General Table of Coins; (954)-959 A New Geographical Table; (960) The Superficial Contents of the Globe; (961)-980 A Guide to Geography; (981)-990 Index; + 2 pp. ;Directions to the Binder; + 4 pp. A List of Subscribers; 90 plates (including the frontispiece) ; 10 full-page maps; 12 double-page/folding maps. **** Full title reads: "A new and authentic system of universal geography, antient and modern : All the late important discoveries made by the English, and other celebrated navigator of various nations, in the different hemispheres, from the celebrated Columbus, the first discoverer of America, to the death of our no less celebrated contryman Captain Cook, &c. and containing a genuine history and description whole world, as consisting of empires, kingdoms, states, republics, provinces, continents, Islands, oceans, &c. with the various countries, cities, towns, promotories, capes, bays, peninsulas, isthmusses, gulphs, rivers, harbours, lakes, mountains, volcanos, deserts, &c.

Very occasional light spotting; an excellent copy. First and only edition of Dupont's defense of the free-trade treaty concluded between France and England in 1786. Du Pont had played an important role in its formation and passage. "Dupont's Lettre constitutes one of the best justifications of the Treaty of 1786 ever published. While admitting that certain interests have been temporarily damaged, it insists upon the ultimate benefits which will be certain after necessary changes have been carried out in France. Had these measures been effected, as the King and the Ministry desired according to the author, there would have been no ill results." (Saricks, Pierre Samuel Dupont de Nemours, p. 97).

        Four Qianlong Battle Prins of the Formosa (Taiwan) Campaign

      Forbidden City Workshops 1788-1789, Beijing - Original Engravings. Highlights. 55 x 87 cm each. Very good: Backed on thin paper. Minor wear. The Qianlong reign (1736-1795) was highlighted by an enormous expansion of its territories. The Emperor marched, fought and patrolled his land from Sichuan, Nepal, Burma, Taiwan (Formosa) all the way to Vietnam. There were to be ten military campaigns throughout his territories during his reign. As the Chinese Emperors often did, Qianlong presented these military campaigns as triumphs. In some cases, regardless of event facts. In Chinese tradition, Qianlong was a patron of the arts and science. There were many Jesuit priests among his court staff. The Jesuit priests had already proven their worth with knowledge in the fields of cartography, mathematics, science, architecture and the arts. In 1773 the Jesuit order was suppressed by the Pope under pressure of the French, Spanish and Portuguese rulers. However, this order never reached the Chinese and thus the Jesuit priests were able to continue to do their work under the safeguard of the Chinese court. Qianlong had, at his court, a number of Jesuit priests who were very gifted and skilled in the arts of painting and astronomy. The known Italian Jesuit Castiglione and the French Jesuit Benoist were amongst them. In the story of the copper plate engravings offered here, they play an important part. During the reign of Kangxi, (1662-1722) copperplate prints were made at the Chinese court by a missionary called Matteo Ripa. These prints depicted scenes of gardens and palaces, but battlefields were not a topic.yet. After Kangxi died, the craft of the copperplate prints was lost. When Qianlong was shown copper prints from Germany he decided to use this medium to eternalize his military triumphs. He ordered Castiglione and his colleagues to make ?drawings? of significant events of his military campaigns. These drawings were sent to Paris, to the Royal Engraver Monsieur Cochin Beauvais. Beauvais was put in charge of this enormous project. He enlisted the services of 4 copper engravers to make the plates according to Castigliones example. The copper was ordered from England and the paper was especially made in size by Monsieur Prudhomme. There were 16 plates in total. The first 4 examples by Castiglione and his colleagues arrived in Paris in December 1766. The order was to make copper plates, and 200 prints of each plate. The copper originals with 100 prints per plate were then sent back to Beijing. Thus safe-guarding 100 copies of the print still in Paris, should the ship not survive the journey. The first prints came back to Beijing in 1770. The last ones in 1775. Many prints were lost during the journey. The Taiwan Campaign Prints: Qianlong was an impatient man. Luckily his court staff consisted of many skilled and gifted artists; The Jesuit astronomer and artist Benoit being one of them. Benoit had proven his skills many times and had a.o. designed the famous ?clock? fountain at the Summer Palace. Qianlong had decided that Benoit was the right person to take up the task of setting up a copper plate studio at the Imperial court in Beijing. In 1769 Benoit had started this craft by making maps in copper plates. The Emperor was very satisfied and ordered further plates to be made. After Father Benoists death in 1774, his pupils followed his strict teachings and continued to make the copper prints in the Jesuit European tradition. All later copper etchings were then made at the Imperial Court. As are these prints of the Taiwan campaign in 1788-89 and the Vietnam campaign. The Chinese text was later added by woodblock printing. Of the Taiwan campaign, there were depictions made in three different media, each made for a different purpose. There were several watercolours made on paper, meant for the archives. One set was made in lacquer. The purpose for them was to be put on the walls of the Great Purple Hall. This reception hall was the area where the representatives of the vazal states of China

        Admiral M.P. Lazarev [Steel Engraved Portrait]

      London, ca. 1840s. Steel engraving, print size 39x34,5 cm on a large sheet 65,5x48,5 cm. "B.R. Davies direxit., J. Thomson sculpt." underneath the image. With an engraved title in Russian and Lazarev's coat of arms engraved on the lower margin. Blank margins with minor repaired tears, creases on the upper and lower blank margins not affecting the images, overall a very good print. Official portrait of Admiral Mikhail Petrovich Lazarev (1788-1851), Russian naval officer, circumnavigator, and the discoverer of Antarctica. The print engraved in England on the special order of the Russian Naval Ministry shows Lazarev in his late years, as the Chief of Staff of the Black Sea Fleet (since 1832); the Admiral is depicted waist length, dressed in uniform with all his regalia and holding a spyglass under his left arm. His name under the portrait is adorned with the coat of arms of Lazarev noble family. ''Lazarev first circumnavigated the globe in 1813-1816, aboard the vessel Suvorov; the expedition began at Kronstadt and reached Alaska. During this voyage, Lazarev discovered the Suvorov Atoll. As a commander of the ship Mirny and Fabian Gottlieb von Bellingshausen's deputy on his world cruise in 1819-1821 (Bellingshausen commanded Vostok), Lazarev took part in the discovery of Antarctica and numerous islands. On January 28, 1820 the expedition discovered the Antarctic mainland, approaching the Antarctic coast at the coordinates 69°21'28''S 2°14'50''W / 69.35778°S 2.24722°W / -69.35778; -2.24722 and seeing ice-fields there. In 1822-1825, Lazarev circumnavigated the globe for the third time on his frigate Kreyser, conducting broad research in the fields of meteorology and ethnography'' (Wikipedia). Later Lazarev took part in the Battle of Navarino (1827, part of the Greek War of Independence, 1821-32); was in charge of the naval units of the Baltic Fleet (1830), and became the Commander of the Black Sea Fleet, the Black Sea ports, and military governor of Sevastopol and Nikolayaev (since 1833).

        Allgemeine Geschichte der Musik, 2 Bände (mit zehn gefalteten Kupfertafeln).

      Leipzig, Schwickert, 1788 - 1801. XXXVI, 504, XVIII, 776 S. Beide Bände mit Titelkupfer sowie mit jeweils fünf teilweise mehrfach gefalteten Kupfertafeln (Instrumentenabbildungen etc.). Erster Versuch einer Allgemeingeschichte der Musik in deutscher Sprache des Organisten und Bach-Enthusiasten Johann Nicolaus Forkel (1749 - 1818), der als einer der Begründer der historisch fundierten Musikwissenschaft in Deutschland gilt. Forkel machte sich außerdem als Bach-Forscher einen Namen und gab 1802 die erste Bach-Biographie heraus, für die er auf direkte Informationen aus seiner Korrespondenz mit den Bach-Söhnen Carl Philipp Emanuel und Wilhelm Friedemann zurückgreifen konnte. Forkels Musikgeschichte, welche die Epochen bis zum Ausklang des Mittelalters beleuchtet, kann als dezidiertestes Werk seiner Art im späteren 18. Jahrhundert gelten. Bemerkenswert sind die ausfaltbaren Kupfertafeln (Instrumentenabbildungen) im Anhang. Seiten des ersten Bandes partiell etwas fleckig bzw. gebräunt. Sonst sehr gutes Exemplar dieses musikwissenschaftlich und -historisch überaus bedeutenden Werkes. Die Faltkupfer in sehr guter Erhaltung.

      J Marshall & Co, London - An exceptionally rare early copy of this scarce story for children. Undated but circa 1788. First published in 1781, there is only one copy of the first edition noted.

In the original dutch floral boards with a new matching cloth spine, and cloth case for preservation. There is a signature - Miss C Darell August 1789 to the front pastedown. New free endpapers. Engraved title page states that the book was priced at 6d in gift paper, 9d bound in Red. With 31 woodcuts in the text (in addition to the frontispiece) - the woodcut on p74 shows Lady Worthy weeping - further evidence that this is a very early edition. 88 pp plus 4 pp of advertisements at the rear and an advert for the Juvenile Magazine on the rear pastedown.

CHIESA DI SAN GIORGIO La chiesa, dedicata ai santi Giorgio, Stefano e Martino di Tours, prospetta su piazza trenta Aprile. L'edificio primogenio è una delle chiese più antiche di Macerata, risalendo sicuramente a prima del 1278. In origine esso si estendeva fino alla metà della piazzetta che oggi fa da sagrato. Il secondo edificio fu costruito dall'architetto Cosimo Morelli, verso fine del '700. La facciata, neoclassica, è opera di Agostino Benedettelli, risale al 1842. Caratterizzata da linee semplici, è divisa verticalmente in tre parti da lesene con capitelli. Il portale di centro è sormontato da un frontone triangolare e una lunetta vetrata, mentre nelle parti laterali sono collocate due statue all'interno di nicchie. L'interno è a unica navata vi si conserva un bel crocifisso ligneo del '500 restaurato nel 1935. Dietro l'altare maggiore c'è una bella immagine della Madonna della salute attribuita al Sassoferrato, dono dell'arciprete Ludovico Ferraioli alla chiesa nel 1666. Con questa immagine, si sviluppò notevolmente la devozione a Maria Santissima, protettrice della salute, sia spirituale sia fisica. Piena pelle

        Autograph Letter

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A rare early autograph letter signed New York, November 3, 1788, by the American lexicographer, publisher of the famous Dictionary of the English Language and whose speller and grammar books educated generations of young Americans. To Isaiah Thomas, the printer of Webster's books, "I shall have about 500 of the American Spelling Book ready to be delivered about the time I shall begin the Lectures. They will be done much better than Folson's edition;...you may have them at a price they sell at by the dozen in Boston...I flatter myself you will not refuse sogood an offer..." Integral semi-detached holograph address leaf. 1 page, 4to. Handsomely framed. <br style="">Best known for his compilation of the American English dictionary, Webster was also famous in his day for The American Spelling Book. This book, first published in 1783, was a very popular textbook for young children and by the end of the 19th century, it had sold an astonishing 100 million copies. It not only taught students how to read and spell, but also provided lessons on subjects such as morality and the principles of American government. This last was particularly close to the heart of Webster's work, for through his dictionary, speller, and other educational work, he hoped to create a distinctly American culture and language. Through its many editions, Webster contracted with local publishers to make copies for their regions. The present letter is addressed to the publisher of the version printed in Boston.  (Joshua Kendall, The Forgotten Founding Father: Noah Webster's Obsession and the Creation of an American Culture (New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2010), p. 7; 74-75; 92-93)
